Like I said before, Juanma should win unless his chin really is sh[COLOR="Black"]i[/COLOR]t. It's the only way he will lose.

I see a replay of the first fight. But any fighter can change enough to win. Lopez would have to keep a high guard, let his punches flow by countering, and try to land the same punch the last guy…
